Shenyang is the biggest city of the Northeast of China. It was once the capital of China about 300 years ago in Qing dynasty. It also was an important city in the war years. If you go there, you could go to visit the resorts like Imperial Palace of Shenyang, the royal catacombs, the mansion of General Zhang, etc. Besides, their folk art is another must-go, it called song-and-dance duet, very famous in China. And the food there also is very good. By train from Beijing just 4 hours.

Located in Shenyangbeizhan Road, is the largest railway station in the Northeast. Outside the station there are many restaurants and hotels, you can go to the KFC to have a short break or Shangdao Coffee. Tips: you could meet some people waiting outside the station and come to you to recommend hotels, don't follow them, it's better go to hotels like Inn Home, much more comfortable and more safety.

In China, we have only 2 architectural complex of imperial palace, the No.1 you could have known is the Forbidden City located in Beijing, and the other one is this one located in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, it called Shenyang Imperial Palace, first built in 1624 by the famous emperor of Qing Dynasty "Nu'erhachi". It's much more smaller than the first one, but it's full of shining points of Manchu nation. Worthy to visit~ Address: Shenhe Road, Shenhe District, Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China

This house was first built in 1914 which is the best preserved mansion of the famous people in the Northeast of China. It's very cool to see because it has both the architecture of China and of the west. And this mansion's owner- Zhang Zuolin and his son Zhang Xueliang Gerneral are two charming men of good education and gentle manner:) Ah yes, there are many stone carving and wood carving works inside the yard, so nice! Address: No.46, Shuaifuxiang, Chaoyang Street, Shenhe District, Shenyang.

The song-and-dance duet is the most typical folk art of the Northeast of China, kind of the Broadway of America, but it's chinese, folk and traditional. However, what they show you is not traditional, it's very hot. (Calm down buddy, there is no spicy scene like kiss, but a flirtatious glance or some honey words) And their cloths are very interesting, colorful and chinese style. Address:No.110, Zhengyang Street, Shenhe District, Shenyang.
